Notes

The archives of the World Health Organization (WHO) hold extensive records on their work against leprosy from 1948 until the present. This archive includes all of the phases in the international work against leprosy in all of the WHO Regions. The World Health Assembly and Executive Committee documents referring to the Leprosy Programme are held in the library. The short-term consultants’ reports that were produced by specialist leprosy advisers are available. The documentation around the production of expert committee reports and interregional conferences are also held. There is also a photographic collection commissioned during the elimination campaign.
